that it might be better for his master to move

Eobert Hall once forgot bis own name,

to kindle it, or call for a servant to do it for

A celebrated New England clergymm, sev
eral years ago, who was settled in a country
parish, was out on horseback making pastoral
visits, lie alighted at the house of one of his
brethren, who took his horse and hitched him
to a bar post, by pulling the end of the bridle
through tho upper mortice, and turning it
over the top of the post. When the good
parson got ready to start, be undertook to
"loose his colt." Meditating, it may be, on
the saying of the Ala-ter, that "it id easier for
a caaiel to go through the eye of a needle,"
etc., he took hold of the bridle and studied the
noose for some time, and then soliloquized,
" Well, well I . It must be so I They put my
horse through the bar-poet to hitch him. But
bow shall I ever get him back?". The par

Story, lint, as waggish brethren, well as

Father Pbiuney, of Maine, who has gone

' Few men ever lived who possessed a mind
so well balanced and so well stored with use

conttitueny and address them, and wake their
acquaintance, telling him' plainly that, unless
he should make himself mure familiar, there
' was great danger of defeat. He regularly
consented. Almost overjoyed to see bim, the
people crowded around for an introduction.
One solid old man shocx him heartily by the
band, and said, "Mr. Adams, I am glad to see
you. My wife used to live at yor father's
and says she has combed your head many a
time when 30a were a boy." "Yea," said Mr.
Adams, in a half querulous tone, "and now, I
suppose, she com us yours." This uncivil reply
made the old man draw hia head into his coat
collar, and slink away abashed and angry.
This sprinkling of bitterness, which was al
most the only fault in the constitution of this
truly great and good man, was an injury to
bim all through life, and was not only dreaded
by his enemies, but also by his friends.
The truth is, one man eacnot be everything

ourselves me very numoie servants of our
correspondents. The uncovered head was
simply the bead unarmed; the helmet being
removed, me party was at mercy, so the

of the adversary ; so the lady's courtesy is but
the form of going on her knees for mercy.
The general principle is marked, as it ought
naturally to be, still more strongly in the case
of military salutes. Why is a discharge of
guns a salute? Because it leaves the guns
eoibty, and at the mercy of the opponent.
And this is so true that the saluting with
blank cartridge is a modern invention. X or
jaerly, salute were 2 red by disch?ging the
cannon balls, and there have been instances
in which the compliment has been nearly fatal
to the visitor whom it meant to boaor. YY nen
the officer salutes, he points the drawn sword
to the ground ; and the salute of the troops is,
even at this day, called " presenting arms"
that is, presenting them to be taken.

information, we lay before our readers the fol
lowing important order :
Headquarters, Fifth Division,
Memphis, Aug. 14, 1862.
Major Fisher, 54th Ohio Volunteers, and
Captain lattleSeld. Provost Marshal of Gen.
Hurlburv's division, are announced as Assist
ant Provost Marshals of Memphis, and will
report to Col. Anthony. More attention will
be given to the quiet ana gooa order ot soldiers
en the streets. The Assistant Provost Mar
shals, and the patrols and guards sent out by
them, have the power and right to suppress all
riots and nuisances. Any house, where noise,
drunkenness and fighting are either going on,
or likely to occur, is a military nuisance, and
will be suppressed by the seizure of its con
tents, and the delivery of the liquors to the
Hospital Department. If the nuisance cannot
thus ba suppressed, the house will be burned
or pulled down, according to its position. Any
Brigade Provost Marshal may suppress
nuisance in the vicinity of his brigade ; but no
house will be pulled nown or burned, without
the written order of the commanding General,
the Provost Marshal, or the commander of a
brigade. Riots on the streets will be promptly
suppressed by blows, the bayonet, or firing
when necessury. Of course, the military are
cot bound by the ncenies usuea by the city
authorities; as licenses are designed tor rev
enue, and not to sanction or encourage crimes
and nuisances.
2. In consequenco of the abuse of the priv
ilege, passes given to officers and soldiers are
hereby limited to the time between guard
mounting in the morning and tattoo at night.
When an othcer or soldier wishes to remain
absent from his regiment, and stay in the city
over night, he must obtain from his command
ing officer and his Brigadier, a special leave of
absence; specifying the reasons or his visit to
the city.
All officers and soldiers found by the provost
guard in the City without passes, at any time.
or after 10 o'clock at night, without special
leave from their Brigadiers, will be arrested
and confined for the night, and sent in the
morning to the guard of Col. McDowell';
brigade; soldiers, to work on the fortifications
one week, officers, to be contined to their tents
in arrest. Written lists, with charges, should
accompany each batch ol prisoners thus ar
rested, and sent with them to the fort. It is
hereby made thedutyof the brigade command
er ef the 2d brigade, oth division, to organize
bis guard so as to' compel all prisoners confined
under this order, as well as such as are, or
may be sentenced to work by regimental or
general court s martial, to labor nine houis
each day on the fortifications ; he will cauee
bis guard house to be carefully repaired and
reconstructed, so as to enable the officer of bis
guard to confine prisoners safely and to con
trol their food. Prisoners who will not work
are not entitled to rations, and must be put on
short diet.
3 The Tegiment of infantry on duty as
Provost Guard in the city, and the cavalry
detailed for the same purpose, are hereby de
clared to be on guard duty during the time of
their detail, and are subject to the conditions
of the 45th article of war. By order of
